DOH tally as of June 10

The number of coronavirus disease cases in the Philippines has climbed up to 23,732 today, Jun 10, with an additional 740 cases being recorded by the Department of Health.

The new cases consisted of 452 “fresh” cases, meaning those where the result was released to the patient within the past three days, and 288 “late” reports, or those that were reported four days or more days ago.
There was one repatriate among the fresh cases, and a significant 45 repatriates among the late cases, meaning newly returned overseas Filipino workers are still not getting their test results on time so they can be treated immediately.

In its daily update, The DOH said the cases reported today were based on the accomplishment reports by only 47 out of 54 current operational labs, indicating the total tally could be higher.

The pregnant OFW arrived in Manila from Taiwan Apr 15 and was quarantined for 14 days in a Pasay City hotel. She went home after her test result came out negative on May 9.

But she was found positive Jun 8, a day after she consulted the city health office after experiencing fever, sore throat and body malaise.


In Davao del Sur, the town of Sta. Cruz reported its first Covid-19 case on Jun 9, raising the number of cases in the province to 15. The municipal health officer said the 23-year old woman tested positive for the coronavirus after returning from Saudi Arabia.

The OFW arrived in Metro Manila on May 18 and was quarantined in a facility there. After initial test results showed her negative for the virus, she was allowed to board a flight to Davao City on May 30.
